Double the pleasure

So I've been beaten with the sick stick repeatedly the last week and finally lost the fight last night. I decided to make a healthy, fruity smoothie for breakfast to soothe my sore throat.  And then later I was feeling a little perkier and made one the tastes more like dessert!  I have a new bullet like blender that is perfect for making smoothies for one person and quite quickly too!

Feeling green smoothie
1/2 a small avocado
1 kiwifruit peeled
1/2 a large banana
1/3 cup frozen strawberries
1 T flaxseed oil
1/2 c - 3/4 c hempmilk

Blend and sip.
The smoothie is naturally sweet and refreshing yet still creamy with the avocado and hempmilk.

Holiday smoothie
1/2 c eggnog*
1 1/2 bananas
1 heaping T peanut butter
1/4 rice krispies cereal
1 scoop chocolate protein powder
ice cubes

Blend and sip slowly.
*Use soy eggnog if you are lactose-intolerant.
The smoothie is delicious, sweet and creamy.  You get hints of banana, peanut butter and eggnog under the chocolate flavor; like a holiday surprise! ;-)

Hope you feel better! I am having a lovely time here in Florida. Lots of ginger and plumeria plants. xoxo
